Frieze Pattern In Real Life

Frieze patterns are patterns that repeat in a straight vertical or horizontal line. Frieze patterns are found in architecture, fabrics, and wallpaper borders. As we learned in class, there are only seven types of frieze patterns. 

As I was looking for frieze patterns around the house, I found that the headboard of my bed has a frieze pattern. Using the reflection chart, I figured out that this frieze pattern is “F1”. It has no vertical or horizontal reflection and it also has no half turn symmetry.
